Kaieteur News – A diminutive 14 year-old by the name of Angel Chappelle representing Kares Crossfit was excellent in her performances as she led all on the day by setting six (6) new records of the 20 that were broken when the Guyana Amateur Powerlifting Federation (GAPLF) held its Intermediates/Masters Championships on Sunday last at the Saint Stanislaus College Auditorium, Brickdam, Georgetown.
Chappelle, who has her sights set on becoming a pediatrician, contested the Women’s Open Raw as well as the Sub-Junior Raw categories, represented her colleagues well as got the most individual records amongst a powerful field of male competitors including Guest Lifter, 27 year-old Carlos ‘The Showstopper’ Petterson-Griffith who accounted for three on a energetic day of action, sponsored by Pele Alumni, Fitness Express Kares Engineering, Kares Crossfit, Dyna’s Embroidery and The Trophy Stall.
Another 14 year-old, Romeo Hunter competing under the banner of Mon Repos Fitness Gym, started working out with his dad just two years ago and already is one of the bright prospects for Guyana. Hunter set Squat and Bench Press records in the 66kg Men’s Sub-Junior Raw division.
Sixteen year-old Faraud Mohamed of Space Gym and a student of Georgetown International Academy sealed three records (Squat, Deadlift, Total) in the Men’s Sub-Junior Equipped 74kg class.
Alex Parmanand, a 19 year-old Teacher who attends the Cyril Potter College of Education; representing Seemangal’s Fitness Gym located in the Cinderella County of Essequibo set new Squat, Bench Press, Dead Lift and Total records in the 105kg Men’s Junior Raw division.
Parmanand’s gym mate, Puneshwar Ramjit, a 22 year-old who started to do powerlifting a mere five months ago, set a new Deadlift record in the 120kg Men’s Junior Raw class.
And, elder statesman, 72 year-old ‘Uncle’ Noel Cummings (RipHit Strength and Conditioning) continues to prove that age is just a number as he lifted his way to yet another record, this time it was in the Deadlift, a new Men’s Master 4 Raw standard.
